How We Can Help
IMG’s Business & Corporate legal team has assisted the establishment of domestic, cross border, and international joint ventures. We have a thorough understanding of U.S. laws related to the formation and operation of joint ventures by U.S. companies, as well as, extensive experience with various foreign laws and legal issues involved in the formation and operation of international joint ventures.
Joint ventures (JV) have become an important strategic option for many maritime companies and international businesses. They are typically less risky than mergers and are easier to unbundle than full organizational mergers. With the scale of organizations within the maritime industry, JVs are a useful way of gaining the benefits of collaboration without the economic and political risk associated with mergers or other business combinations.
